ExploreFoods – Kuih Chang Making Demonstration

Day & Date: 15 June
Timing: 4pm

Come celebrate the Dragon Boat Festival (Duanwu Festival) with us by witnessing a demonstration of how to prepare glutinous rice dumplings! Known by Peranakans as Kuih Chang, and recognisable by their bamboo leaf wrapping, they are traditionally eaten during this festival which falls on the fifth day of the fifth month of the lunar calendar, commemorating the death of Qu Yuan, a Chinese poet who lived during the Warring States period. Join Elizabeth as she shares more on how to prepare this delicious treat at home for your family and friends.

Sign up for this opportunity to explore the NUS Baba House! On Saturdays, we are throwing open our doors for visitors who are keen to discover the house on their own at any of the four entry times. After a short introduction to the house, you will be welcome to explore the rooms at your own pace.


157 Neil Road was once the ancestral home of the Wee family who descended from shipping merchant Wee Bin. It was restored and opened in 2008 as the NUS Baba House, a heritage project which supports the study of architectural conservation, urban and social histories and cultural hybridity.


Today, pieces of furniture as well as portraits and household objects are displayed in a historical context, to suggest ways the material culture of the Straits Chinese may be read in relation to ethnicity, beliefs and the colonial setting.


The third floor has been converted to an art gallery for exhibitions and projects that foster contemporary engagements with Peranakan culture and the history and architecture of the house. Academic researchers and art practitioners are invited to explore and present on the community and neighbourhood from different perspectives.


Limited to 40 pax per time slot and suitable for adults and children aged 12 and above, advanced booking is required.
